Construction of Genocide Museum Begins in Uganda

By Gashegu Muramira

Rwandans living in Uganda and Friends of Rwanda yesterday commemorated the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi by beginning the construction of a Genocide museum at Ggolo memorial site in Mpigi district.

Rwanda's High Commissioner to Uganda, Frank Mugambage, laid a foundation stone on which a state of the art museum will be constructed to serve as an education centre on Genocide.

The 1994 Genocide museum, to sit on a 1.6 acre piece of land in Ggolo, is the first of its kind to be built outside Rwanda and the first in Uganda.
